Annual leave accrues on a weekly basis and you can calculate how much annual leave an employee has accrued based on how many weeks they have worked:
- a full time employee accrues 2.923 hours of annual leave for each completed week of work (based on the standard 38 hour week)
- a part time employee will accrue the relevant proportion of 2.923 hour annual leave for each completed week of work.
Wageline’s WA annual leave calculation guide can help you estimate annual leave entitlements for full time and part time employees. The WA annual leave calculation guide is based on the leave provisions in the state Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993 and are relevant to employees covered by WA awards and award free employees in the state system.
Annual leave is a cumulative entitlement, which means that any leave that is not taken can be carried over to the next year.
